batted cleanup. thank you for that. [laughter] >> would have to say this for congressman paul ryan. unfortunately being wrong doesn't earn you any points when it comes to helping senior citizens across. the budget for 2014 this is bad for seniors as his budget last year and the year before that and the year before that. there's a reason you are. all rights budget is march madness when it comes to seniors. thankfully the american people have made it clear they reject the approach and the house republicans brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors is unacceptable. this year's budget is in a path to prosperity for america's seniors. it's a path to poverty. the nine budget includes ill conceived unclear shift more medicare costs to seniors. once again, ryan medicare voucher schemes are short on detail spirit we don't know how much missing or so pay out of pocket, but here's so we do know. if it was his budget, ryan proposes to replace guarantee of health coverage at the voucher program beneficiaries can use to purchase private health insurance or join some version of
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
. the republican-led house, by contrast, senator paul ryan and his team has a plan that they'll vote on today that has passed -- will balance the budget. and they've passed a budget every year. and our colleagues in the sena senate, while refusing to pass a budget, have delighted in complaining about the leadership and the responsible action of the house by blaming everything they can think of and more on unkind paul ryan, who wants to push old fox off the cliff. and that's not true. he's got good plans. he's got growth plans. but what i -- i would say to you is, this congress, this senate has done nothing while being critical of everyone else. last year, there -- we've had several budgets come up and i voted for several of them. my democratic colleagues have voted for not one. they have voted against the ryan budget. they voted against the president's budget. they voted against the toomey budget. they voted against the rand paul budget. voted against them all. but yet they don't seem to be in the least bit hesitant just to attack everybody else. so i think we have a moral duty to balance the
and political ally paul ryan, tirelessly barn stormed the country in an effort to recruit and promote candidates, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver lin
. we've got paul ryan and a slew of smart, young, and energetic governors ready to take america into the future. [applause] and, the other guys? they got hillary and joe biden. [laughter] so don't tell me, folks, don't tell me, we are the party of compassion. we are the party of immigrants. we are the party of hard-work being taxpayers. we are the party of mobility, opportunity, growth, life, liberty, optimism, and inthey vision. [applause] -- innovation. and look, it is time we started acting like it. and once we do we'll have our comeback. [applause] now i know that some on the right have argued in recent months that the republican party is stuck on austerity. that all we do is talk about cuts. that we don't talk enough about the middle class. well like them i believe that those who stand to benefit most from the restraint of government are the poor and the middle class. but i also know that the only people who set policy are those who win elections. we're not going to do it by dropping a policy paper in everybody's mailbox. there is plenty of openness to new ideas, i assure y
house budget committee chair paul ryan's budget plan comes up this week? >> i'm expecting to hear a very spirited debate in both the senate and the house. you will have republicans and democrats on very different sides of what should be done. >> paul ryan's budget, how does it compare to the democrats proposal? >> it cut spending a lot more and it reduces the deficit a lot more. brian's budget would reduce the deficit almost $6 trillion in 10 years. the marie budget would reduce it a little under $2 trillion in 10 years. >> what other groups are planning to offer their own budget plan and what are those plans likely to focus on? >> again the house, the top democrat on the house budget committee will introduce a democratic alternative and actually it will be similar to patty murray's democratic budget in the senate. both of those plans will have tax increases as well as some spending cuts and neither of them would balance the budget in 10 years. they are less aggressive as far as deficit reduction and in the house the congressional black caucus and professional caucus will be introducing
